and then clogs a tag

anonymous asked:

no offense, but i have to agree with all the other anons about this not being an HP blog anymore. like, i get the ones that tie in to HP, such as racism and homophobia being portayed through blood purity & werewolves, but everything you tag as 'discourse' can be made into like a faqs page and a link on your bio. i'm gonna unfollow, you guys do you, but maybe think about how many followers you're losing bc we don't want to see so many asks clogging our dashes.

ok but here’s an idea… block the tags that we use………………………..

yall like to ignore alana, connor, and jared’s mental illnesses bc you cant make them look “cute” like how you make evan’s look “cute”

EDIT: This post is inclusive to ALL art forms.

Likes can only go so far for artists. Artists may exclusively upload their artwork to tumblr, or don’t have the time to use other sites and prefer tumblr over deviantART due to its simplicity, but the tagging system can make it harder to navigate. Many artists on tumblr tag with high-traffic tags or use their own tags to prevent tag clogging which eventually become lost. That’s why it’s very important to reblog an artist’s work. 

I’m not trying to push you to ruin your blog’s aesthetic or something, nor am I saying that “you must absolutely reblog your favourite artist’s work or you’re trash”, all I’m saying is if you truly want to support your favourite artist, instead of just liking their posts, try to reblog them once in a while. The more reblogs they receive, the more exposure/notes/followers they may receive, and it’s just one of the easiest ways to show you care about them.

*This does not mean to reblog unsourced artwork or works reuploaded to another person’s blog without permission (re:stolen). Nor does this mean to reblog artworks without the artist’s consent, even if this case is slim.

Took Birthday Betta, finally named Finrod, out for a bit to do a major water change, and I did a photoshoot while I was at it.

This betta doesn’t even look real, there are just too many colors that look too good together! He looks like he was hand designed by an artist who studied color composition… and maybe even went a bit overboard. He’s changing colors FAST, though, we’ll see what he looks like in a week :)
